How New Year’s Eve is celebrated across the world

With 2023 fast approaching, we take a look at how countries around the world will celebrate New Year’s Eve.

The English will sing Auld Lang Syne and dance, as well as make resolutions for the year ahead and there will also be fireworks displays across the country, most notably in London.
